Abstract

This research examines Chinese self-perception by studying different ways in which contemporary Chinese intellectuals view the nation's place in history and in the world. These contesting views are reflected in China's effort in presenting itself to the outside world. In answering why Chinese self-perception has been developed in such particular ways, this research further traces Chinese world view from imperial times, and puts it into perspective by analyzing their interaction with foreign perceptions of China.
